opportunity to share the findings. >> thank you for her testimony. and now mr. prendergast. >> thank you for your extraordinary commitment to the people of the congo. deeply appreciated by everyone in this room. i want to begin by echoing something you said, congressman smith, earlier in the hearing. no one is questioning the hard work and dedication in decades of long commitment to key administration officials have exhibited on behalf of peace and congo. i would particularly point out for special accommodation ambassador johnny carson and susan rice, particularly saddened by personal attacks against ambassador raised seer over the last couple weeks over issues related to the congo. it has been fully activated and some people see blood in the water, but knowing john and susan for the past 16 years i can tell you from personal experience that worked tirelessly for peace. reasonable people can disagree over type takes and strategies and it's in that spirit i deliver my testimony today. i'm going to focus remarks and issues related to the congolese peace process and division of labor marks
